Welcome to the Fashion Connector Importer (FCI) documentation. Connected Retail uses a REST API to provide an integration point for clients to Zalando. FCI expects to receive stock updates periodically from the store's POS/ERP or other inventory management systems. A stock update would typically contain information about the stock and price of the articles sold by the store.

The REST API uses PUT verb from REST specification to upload a stock update file to Connected Retail backend where it is consumed and processed to fit data schema in Connected Retail backend services. It is possible to use any programming language or REST client to integrate with Fashion Connector Importer.
